[Gnash] [Newbie!] Need info: compiling for Win32 and Win32-Firefox plugin

Hello! Not only did I just learn about Gnash, but I'm new to Savannah,
too... The usual patience is appreciated.
I have a box that runs Win'08 "Server", not as a server, but as a
desktop OS .
My "real server" runs Linux. :)
I'm looking forward to being able to use Gnash as a Firefox plugin, on
the '08 box. Adobe's product is one big "black box" I perceive as a
potential security hole -- that's what brought me here. Reading the
docs, I found that Gnash caters to my other "bitch": I can block those
$%@ banner-ads that scream "You've won a free computer!'.
FIRST: I see the binary for the standalone player for Win32. Does that
mean that the mozilla plugin doesn't work there (W32) yet? or, will a
build-from-source (of course configured properly) produce one that should?
I have at my disposal:
MS Visual Studio 9 installed, can install 8 if necessary
Cygwin, last used to build a development snapshot of VLC Media Player
All the usual development tools on the Linux box.
Where is, or who has, the Latest and Greatest notes on building for
Win32? I'll do whatever of the three work best:: MSVC, gcc-cygwin, or
After success at that, I'll say "thanks" with some documentation for
you, covering installation and use on Windows for you all.
